She tries to get close to him, hoping he'll fall for her, but things don't go so smoothly. He has a girlfriend and is busy with the dramatic events preceding the birth of Israel. Slowly the barriers come down, Margalit moves in with Eli and they set up a date for their wedding. But then, Israel's harsh reality steps in.

    " “An Israeli Love Story” ultimately achieves a poignant power. En route, it offers a rare glimpse of everyday life in the postwar, pre-state years."
